I can use this cleanser twice a day and it doesn't irritate my skin at all. My skin is oily and dry, and it works great. It removes oil without over drying, smells nice, and feels super clean afterwards.

    Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser:

    This is the best face cleanser i've used. It takes all your make-up off and even bullet proof mascara. Your face feel clean and fresh and not dry at all. I have used this for 6-7 years now and I would not use any other product.

    Pros

    • Smells Great

    Cons

    • Doesn't clear acne
    • Doesn't Remove Makeup
    • Ineffective

    Best Uses

    • Non-acne Prone Skin

    Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser:

    I must be the only person on Earth who isn't impressed with this product. It has a nice, lemony smell to it, but that's where the pros of this product end. It contains sulfates. It does nothing to clear up acne prone skin. I see girls on the internet use it and their faces are full of pimple and red marks so I don't know why they continue to use it.

    Only a product for people with good skin to begin with.

      Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser:

      I was so excited to use this cleanser. Everyone raved about it and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Unfortunately, I wish I had never used it. I don't have sensitive skin so I was surprised when this product started causing bad breakouts. I noticed bumps on my skin as well

          I do not have acne but I will get an occasional pimple by my nose, I also suffer with excema on my face. Since using this, 0 pimples and my excema is completely under control: no dry peeling skin!
          I have used other products and they make my face feel more refreshed than this one, but the results are so much better...

          Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser:

          I have been using Purity for over three months now and have not even gone through the whole bottle yet. A little goes a long way! As far as the product, I think it would be great for someone with dry or sensitive skin but as I have more combination/oily, it doesn't do enough for me. I need to have that clean scrubbed feeling. Often I follow it up with an exfoliator. I don't feel like it removes my makeup, so I use a oil cleanser before it to remove all my makeup. I do follow it with a toner as well, even though it says it tones. For the rest of the bottle, I will use it to clean my brushes, but will probably invest in a different cleanser. I recommend it, but I think it is for a certain skin type!

You may prefer Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser, which is oil-free and formulated with 1% salicylic acid to combat breakouts without causing irritation:
